“Read widely, and without apology. Read what you want to read, not what someone tells you you should read.” ~ Joyce Carol Oates
“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” ~ Toni Morrison, 88 y/o – Author, Nobel Laureate
“Read, read, read. Read everything — trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.” – William Faulkner

Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world. Voltaire
It’s a day to stay inside. It’s a day to read a good book. It’s a day to drink plenty of coffee. It’s a day to do a crossword or two. It’s a day to spend lazily. It’s a day to watch TV. It’s a day to do all or whatever tickles your fancy.
“Think before you speak. Read before you think.” – Fran Lebowitz
